About This Website

This website is about one thing. Drumming without making noise. That might sound odd, but think about this for a minute.

If you have already been searching around the web for solutions to dampen your drum sounds, you probably know where I’m going with this already.

I’ll use my own story to explain why I created this site.

I’ve lived in apartments most of my life. And I like to play drums. That is a bad combination.

I decided to invest in an electronic drum kit, since I figured it would allow me to play drums with less noise. This worked pretty well for my situation.

Then I wanted to try to make recordings with the electronic drum kit, so I had to figure out the best way to record and make it sound natural.

Then I moved to a second floor apartment with kind of lousy acoustics, and had problems with the drum beaters making too much noise on the kick drums and annoying my downstairs neighbors. I had to figure out a way to dampen that.

There are some other things that I had to deal with as well, but it’s been interesting to learn what I needed to do keep my drumming stealthy from my neighbors yet let myself play without restraint. The results I’ve come up with are pretty satisfying.

This website covers a lot of the topics I learned about while going through this process. I hope it helps you figure out how to better equip yourself for silent drumming.
